5 Years only 1 Leinster
5 years by approx. 100K plus.
Money could have been well spent on GDOs or Sports or high performance coaches/Managers.

I know they haver plenty of money backers down there but others complain about others resources in other counties without doing the right thing in their own houses.

For example, Jim Gavin never took a penny, never even took expenses...

How many Leinster titles have Wexford won in the 20 years previous to Davy arriving?

Do you think winning that Leinster had a positive effect on Hurling in Wexford?

Jim Galvin's volunteering and amateurism can only be applauded. He did so without seeking attention or acknowledgement.
Hopefully in time, we see him back in the game, bringing his knowledge and tactical nous to another county.

Yeah it was great for them to win it and its great for Leinster they are competitive, but would  the money be best spent over 5 years plus on underage GDOs/ Sports performance etc, to build for the future .... I don't know, that's why i am asking, will Wexford slip back a bit after he's gone, was it for 5 years of success only, a quick win, nothing about the future.

Agree on Jim, Dubs get some stick rightly or wrongly, but cant fault Jim Gavin for anything he has done for Dublin over his whole life of service to it.

So what you are asking for is for Wexford to abandon spending money on their intercounty hurling team and invest it in underage GDO's /Sports performance etc.

How many Full time GDO's do you think Wexford could employ for the expenses to Davy? One? Two?

Well if runours are to be believed more than 1 anyway , 4 a year for 5 years, maybe 5.

I dont, they just seemed to start from the top down, rather that bottom up. Will it be another 20 years before they win it again?

Remember that you have to still have the expenses of the new manager.  So we'll say two GDO's for a whole county. They'll probably make a difference to the kids who play the game in a limited time capacity. There is only so much that 2 GDO's can do in a county. After that you need a successful inter-county team to generate interest among the young and attract them to the game. It's a Chicken and Egg scenario.

Cyril Farrell fan:
Davy will be renewing his rivalry with Lohan with Galway by the looks of it.
No offence to Wexford, but there is a much better pool of talent coming through in Galway.

Davy will needs add steel to Galway hurling. Very flakey team over the years. Was hoping Davy would team up with Cheddar in Laois. Would be boost to the county.

Cyril Farrell fan:
It looks a done deal now. Davy Fitz to Galway.
It will shake up a few Galway players who have been coasting the last couple of years.

johnnycool:
Wee Davy now rumoured to be in talks with the Cork Camogs....

That wee man will find a high profile gig somewhere..
